Trump Fires DHS Cyber Chief Chris Krebs Over Election Security Comments

President Trump was not happy with Department of Homeland Security Cyber Chief Chris Krebs when he claimed that this election was one of the most secure in history.

So, he just fired him.

Trump announced the dismissal in a tweet Tuesday night.

Krebs issued a statement on November 3rd stating his belief that the election was in order.

The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history. Right now, across the country, election officials are reviewing and double checking the entire election process prior to finalizing the result. When states have close elections, many will recount ballots. All of the states with close results in the 2020 presidential race have paper records of each vote, allowing the ability to go back and count each ballot if necessary. This is an added benefit for security and resilience. This process allows for the identification and correction of any mistakes or errors. There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.

This is a breaking situation and will be updated as information becomes available.
